Employing a FutureWaves system is like having a field of wave buoys wherever your vessel or platform is located without actually having to launch and recover any equipment.
You consistently have a directional power spectrum along with a variety of local wave characteristics and other metocean data that can be used to guide operational decisions. Adding the unique capability of wave timing and vessel-motion forecasting further proves that FutureWaves is an offshore tool that belongs on every high value offshore asset in the industry.
PACIFIC OCEAN (Nov. 1, 2018) U.S. Navy divers prepare to attach the “front porch” to a test version of the Orion capsule as part of Underway Recovery Test-7 (URT-7) in the open water of the Pacific Ocean, Nov. 1, 2018. Orion will be towed into the amphibious transport dock ship USS John P. Murtha’s (LPD 26) well deck. NASA is awarding APS with an Agency Achievement Award for our contribution to the safe recovery of the spacecraft using our FutureWaves technology. (U.S. Navy photo courtesy NASA/Released)
